Col. Flores said that earlier at around 6:30 p.m., operatives of Station Intelligence Branch (SIB of Caloocan police North Extension Office (NEO) received information regarding the presence of two alleged drug personalities who were about to deliver illegal drugs at NHA Building.

Upon checking the veracity of report, operatives were able to trace the suspects but when the two sensed the presence of lawmen, they went inside Room 407 at the 4th floor of the resettlement building which prompted the police to give chase where they saw the ongoing pot session inside.

Police recovered from the area five pieces of heat sealed transparent plastic sachets containing undetermined quantity of shabu and several pieces of drug paraphernalia.
